TY - THES. T1 - Insertional mutagenesis in the vascular wilt pathogen Verticillium dahliae. AU - Santhanam, P.. N1 - WU thesis 5673. PY - 2014. Y1 - 2014. N2 - Vascular wilt diseases caused by soil-borne pathogens are among the most devastating plant diseases worldwide. The ascomycete fungus Verticillium dahliae causes vascular wilt diseases in hundreds of dicotyledonous plant species, including important crops such as eggplant, lettuce, olive, spinach and tomato. The resting structures, microsclerotia, are triggered by root exudates to germinate and penetrate the roots after which the fungus grows into the xylem vessels. The fungus colonizes these vessels and interferes with the transportation of water and nutrients, resulting in the development of symptoms such as stunting, wilting, chlorosis and vascular browning. Verticillium wilt diseases are difficult to control due to the longevity of the microsclerotia, the broad host range of the pathogen, the inability of fungicides to kill the fungus ...

Background Agrobacterium tumefaciens has long been known to transform plant tissue in nature as part of its infection process. This natural mechanism has been utilised over the last few decades in laboratories world wide to genetically manipulate many species of plants. More recently this technology has been successfully applied to non-plant organisms in the laboratory, including fungi, where the plant wound hormone acetosyringone, an inducer of transformation, is supplied exogenously. In the natural environment it is possible that Agrobacterium and fungi may encounter each other at plant wound sites, where acetosyringone would be present, raising the possibility of natural gene transfer from bacterium to fungus. Methodology/Principal Findings We investigate this hypothesis through the development of experiments designed to replicate such a situation at a plant wound site. A. tumefaciens harbouring the plasmid pCAMDsRed was co-cultivated with the common plant pathogenic fungus Verticillium albo-atrum

Implications of Fumigation and Verticillium Wilt in Peanut. Numerous studies report on the efficacy of combinations of chloropicrin and methyl bromide in the management of Verticillium wilt; however, chloropicrin primarily served as a worker safety indicator for toxic fumes because methyl bromide alone is odorless (3). Henis and Bar (4) found that microsclerotia of V. dahliae are sensitive to chloropicrin and it has been evaluated as an alternative to methyl bromide in other crops such as potato, tomato, strawberry, and cauliflower. Results from this study indicate that chloropicrin was ineffective at reducing populations of V. dahliae in soil at the rates evaluated. Although, the use of chloropicrin reduced Verticillium wilt incidence compared to the non-treated control, the level of suppression achieved was insufficient. Metam sodium provides a wide spectrum of activity towards soilborne pests. In peanut production, fumigation with metam sodium is used primarily for management of CBR (5,7). ...
What does Verticillium wilt look like? The first signs of Verticillium wilt that you may notice are individual branches that suddenly wilt and die. Affected branches may occur on one side of the tree or may be scattered throughout the tree. If you carefully peel away the bark of these branches, you may see brown or green streaking in the sapwood just under the bark. Streaking is common in trees such as maple or redbud, but often is not visible in ash and lilac.. Where does Verticillium wilt come from? Verticillium wilt is caused primarily by two fungi, Verticillium dahliae and Verticillium albo-atrum. These fungi are commonly found in Wisconsin soils and in roots, branches and leaves of infected plants. These fungi enter trees and shrubs through their roots and grow in the xylem (i.e., the water-conducting tissue) of plants where they lead to blockage of water movement. This lack of water movement is what eventually leads to wilting.. How do I save a tree or shrub with Verticillium wilt? Trees ...
The vascular wilt fungi Verticillium dahliae and V. albo-atrum infect over 200 plant species, causing billions of dollars in annual crop losses. The characteristic wilt symptoms are a result of colonization and proliferation of the pathogens in the xylem vessels, which undergo fluctuations in osmolarity. To gain insights into the mechanisms that confer the organisms pathogenicity and enable them to proliferate in the unique ecological niche of the plant vascular system, we sequenced the genomes of V. dahliae and V. albo-atrum and compared them to each other, and to the genome of Fusarium oxysporum, another fungal wilt pathogen. Our analyses identified a set of proteins that are shared among all three wilt pathogens, and present in few other fungal species. One of these is a homolog of a bacterial glucosyltransferase that synthesizes virulence-related osmoregulated periplasmic glucans in bacteria. Pathogenicity tests of the corresponding V. dahliae glucosyltransferase gene deletion mutants ...
These microsclerotia appear as black pepper-like spots that are visible to the naked eye. If a cross-section of an infected stem is examined under a microscope, microsclerotia will also be visible in the inner pith tissue representing the colonization of the vascular tissue by the fungus.. Scouting techniques. The best time to scout for Verticillium wilt in canola is at swathing, but it is even possible to identify this disease after harvest as microsclerotia will continue to develop on the stubble. Infected plants will become more obvious after harvest as they will turn grey-black as they senesce.. Control tips. There are no foliar or seed treatment fungicides currently registered for control of Verticillium wilt in canola. In addition, there is no host resistance in canola varieties at this time for V. longisporum.. In northern Europe, where this disease has been an important issue for more than 30 years, it is recommended that growers leave three years between canola crops. This allows the ...
Verticillium wilt is a soil-borne disease that can cause devastating losses in cotton production. Because there is no effective chemical means to combat the disease, the only effective way to control Verticillium wilt is through genetic improvement. Therefore, the identification of additional disease-resistance genes will benefit efforts towards the genetic improvement of cotton resistance to Verticillium wilt. Based on screening of a BAC library with a partial Ve homologous fragment and expression analysis, a V. dahliae-induced gene, Gbvdr6, was isolated and cloned from the Verticillium wilt-resistant cotton G. barbadense cultivar Hai7124. The gene was located in the gene cluster containing Gbve1 and Gbvdr5 and adjacent to the Verticillium wilt-resistance QTL hotspot. Gbvdr6 was induced by Verticillium dahliae Kleb and by the plant hormones salicylic acid (SA), methyl jasmonate (MeJA) and ethephon (ETH) but not by abscisic acid (ABA). Gbvdr6 was localized to the plasma membrane. Overexpression of
Wish there were an easy answer to your question! Verticillium wilt is caused the fungi Verticillium albo-atrum and Verticillium dahliae. These fungi live in the soil and attack plants whose roots are stressed. These fungi may attack more than three hundred woody and herbaceous plant species. Plant susceptibility or resistance may vary from one region to another since the virulence found in the different strains of Verticillium sp. is usually different as well as the genetic resistance of the plant. Cultural practices and environmental conditions can influence the infection of susceptible plants with this disease ...
Verticillium dahliae gehört zu den bodenbürtigen Askomyceten. Dieser Pilz verursacht Welke-Erkrankungen und verfrühtes Altern in mehr als 200 verschiedenen, auch ökonomisch wichtigen Pflanzen. Verticillium kann im Boden ohne Wirtspflanze durch die Bildung von Mikrosklerotien bis zu 10 Jahre überleben. Wurzelexsudate induzieren die Auskeimung der Mikrosklerotien. V. dahliae infiziert seinen Wirt durch die Wurzel, besiedelt den Wurzelkortex und dringt dann in die Xylemgefäße ein. Die Infektion des Wirts durch pathogene Pilze erfordert Penetrations- und Kolonisierungsprozesse. Am Eindringen durch die Wurzeloberfläche sind adhäsive Proteine an verschiedenen Stellen der Wirt-Parasit-Interaktion beteiligt. Adhäsive Proteine sind in S. cerevisiae gut untersucht, während nur wenig über sie in V. dahliae bekannt ist. Der Adhäsions-Transkriptionsfaktor Flo8 aus Hefe reguliert die Expression der sogenannten „Flocculation"-Gene wie zum Beispiel FLO1 und FLO11. Ein Stamm ohne FLO8 ist nicht in ...

A quantitative and robust bioassay to assess plant defense response is important for studies of disease resistance and also for the early identification of disease during pre- or non-symptomatic phases. An increase in extracellular pH is known to be an early defense response in plants. In this study, we propose a fast and reliable alkalinization assay to monitor plant defense response in potatoes. Using potato suspension cell cultures, we observed an alkalinization response against various pathogen- and plant-derived elicitors in a dose- and time-dependent manner. We also assessed the defense response against a variety of potato pathogens, such as protists (Phytophthora infestans and Spongospora subterranea) and fungi (Verticillium dahliae and Colletotrichum coccodes). Our results show that extracellular pH increases within 30 min in proportion to the number of pathogen spores added. Consistently with the alkalinization effect, the higher transcription level of several defense-related genes and

Genome Research. 23:1271-1282. Interpretive Summary: Plant pathogens that utilize sexual reproduction tend to have populations that are genetically more diverse. This diversity tends to help the population overcome environmental pressures, such as those faced when a crop has genetic resistance to the pathogen. However, many plant pathogens rely on asexual reproduction, which is thought to be more limited in its ability to provide genetic diversity in populations. In this paper, we investigated genetic variation in the asexual pathogen Verticillium dahliae, a pathogen that causes disease in many crops including sugarbeet, potato, and tomato. We discovered that mitotic chromosomal recombination is occurring in this fungus in regions of the genome that harbor effectors, genes that are important for causing ...

Verticillium longisporum is a soil borne vascular plant pathogen and a serious threat to the agronomically important oilseed rape, the source for biofuel and nutritional oil in Europe. In the interaction of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana with V. longisporum a novel function of the jasmonoyl isoleucine (JA Ile) receptor COI1 was found. This novel function of COI1 mediates susceptibility to this pathogen independent of the presence of JA Ile or fungal analogues. Grafting experiments revealed that COI1 is required in root tissue for the expression of disease symptoms in the shoot (Ralhan et al., 2012). In this study, RNA sequencing of infected and uninfected roots of wild-type plants, the coi1-mutant and the JA-biosynthesis mutant aos was used to identify genes that are under the control of the JA-Ile-independent COI1-function. The question to which extent the signal trans-duction chain of the novel COI1-function differs from the known COI1-dependent signal transduction pathway was also ...

Although we have what seems like a long growing season here in the Valley of the Sun, the truth is that tomatoes wont produce well in the summer heat. So, timing is everything in terms of growing them. We suggest planting tomatoes in February for harvest in May or planting in late September for harvest in December. Larger types of tomatoes require more time for ripening, so its best to plant the small and medium-sized varieties in our desert gardens. Look for tomatoes labeled for 60- to 70-day maturity. Successful varieties include: Yellow Pear, Cherry, Sweet 100, Earlypak, Earlygirl, Small Fry, Patio, Champion, Earliana, and Sunripe. When looking for resistant varieties, the letters "VNFT" indicate a plants resistance to Verticillium Wilt (V), Nematodes (N), Fusarium Wilt (F), and Tobacco Mosaic Virus (F).

Potassium deficiency symptoms appear as interveinal chlorosis on older leaves, that eventually progress to a red and/or gold coloration of the leaves. In cotton prior to bloom these symptoms will be visible on the lower leaves first because the plant is able to translocate Potassium from the older leaves to the newer leaves of the plant. After peak bloom similar deficiency symptoms can appear as well but will appear on the upper third of the plant.. In addition to the traditional leaf discolorations caused by Potassium deficiency, after peak bloom leaves may also begin to curl downward and the leaves to become thicker. If the Potassium deficiency is severe enough the plants may start to defoliate early, which can cause the deficiency to be confused with the vascular wilt disease called Verticillium wilt.. To distinguish between Potassium deficiency and Verticillium wilt, slice the stem and look for vascular discoloration. If the vascular tissue is bright white with no discoloration, then it is ...

The protective fungus Fusarium oxysporum Fo47 reduces the severity of wilt caused by the soilborne pathogen Verticil-lium dahliae in pepper. Modes of action responsible for the biocontrol activity were studied. Microscopic observationsof fluorescent protein-transformed strains colonizing the root surface show that the colonization patterns of Fo47 andV. dahliae were similar. Pixel counting of the images obtained by confocal microscopy showed that Fo47 reduces colo-nization of the root surface by V. dahliae, suggesting a possible role of competition for nutrients at the root surface.Besides these effects on surface colonization, the hormonal pathways activated during priming of plant defenceresponses were identified by measuring the amount of some phytohormones and their derivatives in roots and stems ofpepper. Results showed an early, slight increase of jasmonyl isoleucine, followed by a transient increase of salicylic acidduring the pre-challenged phase of priming and an increase of ...

The study investigated the effect of a Bacillus globisporus strain and produced supernatants on growth of selected plant pathogens, i.e. Alternaria alternata, Botrytis cinerea, Cladosporium spp., Trichothecium roseum, Fusarium oxysporum, F. solani, Trichoderma viride, Rhizoctonia solani, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, Verticillium dahliae. The highest fungistatic activity of bacterial cultures was found against R. solani, S. sclerotiorum, B. cinerea and T. roseum, whereas in case of the supernatant, it was found against R. solani and S. sclerotiorum. At identical concentrations, the fungistatic activity of B. globisporus culture appeared stronger than that of the supernatant. No significant effect of bacterial culture concentration in the medium was observed. Growth of Cladosporium spp., V. dahliae, T. viride, and A. alternata was found both after seven and 10 days of the experiment. In case of the supernatant, this situation was observed only for F. oxysporum, after seven days.
